See, the bottom one looks like a mask. The top one looks like some type of alien or robotic life form. Maybe an Auton or something.

My thoughts exactly! The second one is more "utterly faceless" which seems to work better for what I understand the character to be about at this point. Also, not being able to see his eyes clearly is a plus for such a character, IMO. (See also: V For Vendetta.)

You know, I haven't read/heard a ton about this movie. Everything I do know is kinda vague. So I can't really guess what they're trying to go for but I do agree that these pictures seem to represent two vastly different concepts. The first has a sci-fi/horror/supernatural kinda feel and the second has a more psychological thriller vibe.

Agree. And the second vibe is what I gather to be the actual tone of the story, which is partially why I think it works better. See also, NO CREEPY DOLL EYES. ;)

This link is probably the most informative one I've read so far: http://filmink.com.au/news/aussie-antihero_2/ (They are keeping a lot under wraps though.)

Yes, I agree too. and even if I usually go for sci-fi/supernatural, in this case the second one is definitely better. Again, at least from what we know about them.
